Weekly Wrap-Up: What do birthdays, cabbages, Shakespeare and Don Quixote have in Common?

Friday, February 11, 2011

Today was Zach's 14th birthday.  My, time flies!  He is growing into such a great man!  We did very little school today because it was his birthday.  But we did study about Cervantes and Don Quixote. We also watch Man of La Mancha.  We are currently starting Don Quixote (Oxford Illustrated Classics Series) to get a quick overview of this funny piece of literature!

One highlight for Zach today was that Titan finally started rolling over. He had been trying to teach Titan to roll over on command, but it wasn't working.  Mainly because Titan isn't the type of dog that like to be on his back for any amount of time.  Today Titan just started rolling over on command for Zach.  Yay, Titan!!

Today we doubled up on school to get more done since yesterday we didn't do much.  We read about another famous Renaissance write, Shakespeare and will be reading some of his plays (in story form) later with Shakespeare Stories.

Low key day.  Got school done and even got some down time in before teaching my Spanish lessons. We read Macbeth from Shakespeare stories.  Awesome!

Big science experiment day!

Cabbage, carbon dioxide, and chemical reactions!

Today we have on the schedule to read more Shakespeare and finish up with the rest of school.  I also am getting my haircut and have the goal of making out the boys' assignment lists for next week. We will see how much gets done.

What a good week. I try to get lesson plans for the next week done Friday afternoon too. It really makes me feel free during the weekend too. This year I started working hard on laundry all week to have it done by Friday too so I can take off laundry of clothes during the weekend too and just do sheets. LOL.
